Editors’ note: The Glyph Atom RAID SSD and the Atom SSD are very similar, so their reviews are similar.

If you own a 12-inch MacBook or one of the new MacBook Pros, the Atom solid-state drive from Glyph has everything you’d want in a portable drive.

First, it’s superfast. It uses USB 3.1 Gen 2 and its real-world read speeds averaged about 420MBps and 270MBps for writing and reading, respectively, making it one of the fastest non-RAID portable drives. (The Atom RAID SSD, which uses RAID-0, scored 675MBps and 460MBps, respectively.) Its hard aluminum casing and removable rubber protective case mean it’ll survive a 6-foot drop onto a carpet floor (something I actually tested) and still work fine. And it’s a USB-C drive that includes both a USB-C cable and a USB-C-to-USB-A cable. This means it will work with any computer with any USB port permutation.
